Though they wear the orange jumpsuits associated with community service, there's more to the trash-talking juvenile offenders of the BBC's Misfits than meets the eye (a scenario that recalls the similarly salty Attack the Block). While on their first job, lightning strikes the gang, and four of the delinquents find they've developed superpowers, making them a cross between The Breakfast Club and The X-Men. Slang-spouting Kelly (Lauren Socha) can read minds, socially inept Simon (Ian Curtis doppelgänger Iwan Rheon) can turn invisible, track star Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) can reverse time, and self-obsessed Alisha (Antonia Thomas) becomes sexually irresistible. Irish loudmouth Nathan (Robert Sheehan), however, appears to have gotten away power-free, and when his mom kicks him out of the house, he sleeps at the community center after hours. Unfortunately, the meteorological phenomenon also transforms their probation worker, Tony, into a raving loony, so they put a stop to his rampage, hide the evidence, and return to work under the watchful eye of Sally (Alex Reid), his replacement. Though they were acting in self-defense, they doubt anyone will believe their story. As the six episodes unfurl, they encounter other storm-transformed locals, which leads to romantic complications for Nathan, a hairy surprise for Kelly, and a Groundhog Day-like experience for Curtis, who learns that it isn't always wise to try to change fate. The revved-up theme from the Rapture, moody song selections from Joy Division and Nick Drake, and proliferation of prudish pod people at the end has contributed to a devoted following among viewers who prefer their scares with a little snogging and a lot of suggestive dialogue--it can also be unexpectedly poignant, particularly where Simon and Nathan are concerned. In its first season, Howard Overman's creation won the British equivalent of the Emmy, the BAFTA, for best drama series. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

3.0 out of 5 stars Such a good show! But you need to know... October 8, 2012
By rabaku
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They have switched out and removed songs in this DVD release! In the last episode,(this next part isn't really a spoiler so don't worry) when Nathan is wearing the suit and before he puts in his headphones to stop the villain, the original song Low Rider, by the band War, is switched out of the scene to some random song. It's a very cool scene originally, but with that song cut out, it really changed the effect that it made (for me at least). That scene is one of the highlights of the season, but with the original song gone, it's just not as epic and cool as it originally was.

Now, why would they change the song? The answer is simple, they couldnt clear the music rights for the DVD release (at least the region 1 release).

Although this doesn't seem like a huge loss, why should you care? Because if this song was cut from the series, there's no telling what other songs got cut out as well. Apparently according to another reviewer, earlier in the same episode (episode 6), some songs were either missing or changed as well.

They did the exact same thing for the season 1 release of the U.K. Show Skins, Vol. 1 , except it was even worse because they had to actually remove an entire scene in the ending of that season.

Anyhow, not all this of this will matter to some, but it makes a big difference to me. When I watch a movie or show, I like to watch it how it was meant to be presented, completely unchanged and uncut.

So ya, this show is definitely 5 stars on my list, but because of the way the soundtrack has been cut on the DVD region 1 release, I give the product 3 stars. This show has a great soundtrack, and I hate seeing it's songs disappear in this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do I love this show? August 8, 2011
By Scott
I honestly can't figure out why I can't stop watching this show. The premise of kids getting super powers after being stuck my lightening and the fact that I can't understand what they are saying sometimes ( my untrained American ears) would have normally been enough for me. But I was bored and played the first episode on Hulu and had to stop halfway through because I knew that my wife would love the show and she did. We just recently re-watched the first three episodes with my In-laws and turned them onto it as well.
The first thing that comes to mind as far as why I like this show so much are the characters. Each of these actors plays their parts perfectly, they somehow manage to be unlikeable and someone I want to have a beer with at the same time. I don't know enough about British culture (had to look up what a chav was) to know if they are playing on stereotypes but these actors are making some very memorable characters.
The show also uses some "edgy" music (for lack of a better term) along with a certain cinematic style (again, don't know if that's the right term but the use of unfocused shots to direct our attention to certain things is pretty unique) that sets it apart from other shows.
And finally, the show seems to be taking its time. I'm 5 episodes into it and so far no one has tried to save the world yet. That's good in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misfits series July 4, 2011
By Godot
You will love 'Misfits'. My friend introduced me to the show last year(2010) and I had to go online and find all the 13 episodes (they are on season 3 right now). I had been looking for a place to buy the episodes and amazon finally has them up, but they are selling them as if they recently got released-which is not entirely true.
That said, from the first line to the last twitch, you will admire their acting.Kelly (character) is especially wonderful.
You might not like it at first(which is insane)but interestingly, I didn't like it at first and then i tried it once more and that's when I had to go on an online hunt for the episodes.
By the way, if you like this show, may I suggest 'The Inbetweeners' and 'Skins' UK (All originals)

If you had told me that a show about juvenile delinquents with superpowers would turn into one of my contemporary favorites, I'd have thought you were crazy. Expertly blending ribald comedy with a science fiction theme, "Misfits" is easily one of the funniest and most wildly entertaining shows that I've seen in a while. Seriously. And if I were to describe it further, it would sound even sillier. The five central characters in "Misfits" meet in a community service group, get caught in a freak electrical storm that juices them with lightning, and awake to realize that their world has changed forever. Actually, not just their world but the world around them as the strange storm has affected others in macabre and hysterical ways.

Season One is comprised of only six episodes, but they are a super strong introduction. Why did it take this long to get an official North American release? Three more seasons have already been filmed as this grouping aired in 2009 originally. The Special Features include a "Making of" featurette, cast and crew interviews, and "Simon's films" (one of the characters shoots a lot of video footage).

With a cast of talented young actors, it might be tempting to dismiss this as a show exclusively for a younger demographic. And perhaps it is. But as an adult, I think it is an absolute laugh riot. If you like edgier fare (this is rich with colorful language, brief nudity, and wildly inappropriate behavior), I strongly encourage you to give this a look. Remember, though, this is a British production. Some of the references might elude you if you are completely unfamiliar with the pop culture scene across the pond and many of the accents are quite extreme. Although I didn't struggle too much, I have friends that watched the show with subtitles.

I love that this show is about a group of kids viewed as screwups by society who then turn around to save society that gave up on them. Also the cast is great.

I never thought I would like British comedy, but Nathan is hilarious. Refreshing to see average-looking actors and actresses as main characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starts off slowly, but worth the wait.
The actors are very good, the storyline is compelling and it's not overly glamorous. I'm looking forward to the next season, the cliffhanger was a DOOZY!
